Life Kills Lyrics

by Human League

When you fall into your seat, you know you feel you might be dying
As the breath rasps in and out of your burning throat
You can't control your lungs because you're so tired
You're half awake with one arm in your coat

Well, thank God, that there is someone there to drive you
You know, you couldn't make it on your own
He helps you through the door, you sit down on the floor
And you're asleep before you are alone

Your life is like a schedule
You run to meet the bills
No one's awake to tell you
Life kills

Your life is like a schedule
You run to meet the bills
No one's awake to tell you
Life kills

For a while, it seems exhaustion has subsided
The day is over and the moon is high
But your period of work is pre-decided
Funny, how the hours of freedom seem to fly

Well, thank God, that there is someone there to drive you
You know, you couldn't make it on your own
He helps you in the door, you sit down as before
Another shift to pay another loan

Your life is like a schedule
You run to meet the bills
No one's awake to tell you
Life kills

Your life is like a schedule
You run to meet the bills
No one's awake to tell you
Life kills

Your life is like a schedule
You run to meet the bills
No one's awake to tell you
Life kills

Your life is like a schedule
You run to meet the bills
No one's awake to tell you
Life kills

Your life is like a schedule
You run to meet the bills
No one's awake to tell you
Life kills
